5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We came here in the early morning for coffee / espresso and a variety of breakfast pastries. Everything was delicious and well priced. Great stop if you are staying in this area.

“Good Coffee and Pasteries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

It was open early with the smell of good coffee enticing you to call inside.The pasteries were freshly baked and complimented the coffee. The prices however seemed a bit higher than a similar bakery

“Great Pastries, Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

This is a nice little bakery. The scones are delicious and the coffee is good. The people behind the counter were warm and friendly. We liked it so much we came back a second time on our recent trip.

“Lovely little French bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

We were staying in the Marina district and this was a great close location to have a quick breakfast. We ended up eating breakfast at the bakery twice. The first day there were a lot of choices and we had a sausage quiche and cinnamon cluster. We weren't in the mood for coffee and asked for water. Unfortunately they were out of bottled water so we had tap water. It was too early for all of the delicious looking cakes in the other case but they were tempting. The second time we ate there, the offerings weren't as abundant and we each had a ham and cheese croissant and split a latte. The croissant was just a little old (not as light and flaky as we like) but it was filling and delicious.
